List of Windows Phone 8 launch partners shows LG is out


In today’s Windows Phone 8 presentation Microsoft revealed their launch partners, and there is one prominent partner missing – LG.

LG was involved in the original Windows Phone 7 launch, but achieved only a small share of the already small Windows Phone pie, in the order of 7%.

The company has earlier already been rumoured to be getting out of the Windows Phone game, with the company saying they “currently has no plans of rolling out another LG-manufactured Windows phone soon.”

They did however confirm they would continue with research and development of the OS, so may be back, presumably if it demonstrates traction.

Will any of our readers be missing LG? Let us know below.
